Some selected members of NILEST Staff were beneficiaries of the recent Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) sponsored training of the Nigerian Youths on Digital Skills, which took place in Kano between 16th January and 18th January 2024
The training, which had its title as ‘Digital Skills for Youth Empowerment,’ had Selected Youths from Northern States represented while, the selected beneficiaries from NILEST who were mobilised to the workshop by the magnanimous permission of the management led by Prof. M.K. Yakubu cut across tribes, religions and gender
The permission by the DG for the nominees to participate in the training programme, which had its venue at Niimah Guest Palace Hotel, was necessary because the programme was not NILEST sponsored.
The workshop offered the beneficiaries the opportunity to learn skills to use applications such as Canva, html, Capcut etc., that can be used for Web designing, content creation and many others
The 2-day event was capped up by the beneficiaries being issued a certificate of participation and empowered with simless, wireless tablet each.
